Observer
NameJenna G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving on the highway, a very famous one in Massachusetts. I95, it was the biggest green flash it took up the whole entire sky.It was SO bright I thought it was a firework going off right infront of me.It wasn't distant. It was so close to me. Only lasted a second or two. I believe there were other colors also. I was just driving so I didn't get to fully observe.But this is my first time seeing a meteor and I'm ecstatic! I had to report this it was record breaking, with it's size and colors! Just gorgeous
